A pioneer of the organic foods movement, Amy’s started over 30 years ago with a simple mission to make good food for everyone at the table. Andy and Rachel Berliner started the company in their California farmhouse kitchen in 1987, and they named it after their newborn daughter, Amy. Their first product was a vegetable pot pie with a flaky, homestyle crust. Today, we are still family-owned, but we now make more than 250 products, and we sell our homestyle foods in over 23 different countries. Amy’s employs over 2,700 people with headquarters in Petaluma, California and manufacturing facilities in Santa Rosa, CA; Medford, OR; and Pocatello, ID.

We built Amy’s on a deep love for our planet and its people. For us it’s not a goal, a strategy or a talking point. It’s a way of life, and it always has been. Going organic was the right thing for us from the start, even before it was the popular thing to do. We did it because it felt right then—and it’s never felt more right, right now. As a leader in our industry, we understand the gravity of every decision we make. We are all too aware of the footprint businesses leave on the Earth. We can’t just not be part of the problem; we need to be part of the solution. That’s why we take a holistic approach—from the vegetables we pick to the type of energy that powers our business to how we dispose of waste—to love our planet and heal it in every way possible. We cook with plant-based protein, which emits 77% less carbon dioxide than if we were to cook with animal-based proteins—and uses 96% less land. For context: one Amy’s veggie burger creates 91% less greenhouse gas than a hamburger.We know it’s not enough to recycle; we also need to create products that can be recycled. Right now, 75% of Amy’s packaging is readily recyclable. But for us, that’s not good enough. By 2030, we want that number to be 100%. To get there, we’re developing compostable films and bowls to replace the ones that are currently not easy to recycle.
